Basically, a midlife crisis is when you realize being a hard-working responsible normal guy is a crock of shit
...but its too late to be a freewheeling dude anymore because you are old and lame, and probably burdened with family responsibilities and money issues.

So, caught between these two realizations, you freak out.

You might change your mind in a few years when there is more peer pressure to be "normal" all of a sudden, when chicks start being more interested in guys with cash and more overly dismissive of those without, and when you feel like a greasy little loser for sticking to those adolescent ways of thought. Maybe not, but then again, maybe so. People don't want to admit it, but this is usually why they get suckered into "normalcy."

Then when you reach 40 all of a sudden you realize it was a crock of shit you bought into basically to get laid and "not feel like a loser" but in fact you are no longer getting laid and you feel like a loser anyway, and you were right after all at age 19.

Yes, but I'd say it is when you realize everything is a crock of shit. It's called disillusionment. Why do people continue to perp the fraud and sell young people fairy tales? My midlife crisis was really brief. One week I thought, this is all a bunch of shit! And then I got on with life because I had already bought into the game and now I have to take care of my responsibilities. But I know the truth now.

You gotta have a balance. Plot your life so that you make the most money possible spending the least amount of time doing it. During your time off waste no minute.

It's a cliche but you gots to live life to the fullest. I realized at 16 life was a blink of an eye. I partied HARD but i still got up every morning and ran 5 miles and made money.

Now i'm 38 and i've done more than any 10 guys I know. I've made love to hundreds of beautiful women. I make more money than I can spend. I've traveled the world. I sail my yacht through the Caribbean every year. And I totally exhaust my wife. I keep all of our lives fast paced, unless it's time to chill with some Mai Tai and bong rips.

I'll never have a mid life crises because I live a constant bucket list. It's always a blast, always exciting, and always a laugh. You just gotta have the right perspective and the right attitude.

To all the young kids out there, plan plan plan. Don't be a loser. Research. Read. Find a way. Make some cash. And have fun. Forget the bitches. When you're doing a 100 mph they'll be dying to hang with you.

Work hard at things you love. If you don't love what you do than find something that you do love, or have always wanted to do. Normal is a t.v. program, its a good concept of the way we would like things to be but is all a lie. Doesn't mean you can't strive for it.

In all serious though there has to be something else you have always wanted to do. Buy an old car and fix it up. Get a motorcycle and tool around on it. Jump out of a plane. Eat some weird shit from china. Go to China. Moon a cop.

True. The reality for most men is this:

When you get really old and you're on your deathbed, if you can look back and say, "Man, I really got a lot of great pussy back in the day!" then you won't have any regrets whatsoever. That's the REAL bottom line. Anything else you did in your life was just icing on the cake.

you are so full of it! You know why you live your life at 100mph, its because you can't bear to stand still, & be silent, because you are terrified of what you may "feel" & what you may hear. You don't know who you really are! You are on automatic pilot 24/7 & completely disconnected from your true self.

In all that you wrote, you said nothing about your spiritual self, your soul, your connection to the Divine. See, you are all about materialism, devoid of anything deeper. You said you have made love to hundreds of women. Well, if you were single, I would'nt even give you the time of day, why, because you are used goods, all washed up. You are an empty shell. There is nothing to you that would hold a good woman's interest.
